Dewey had just told his brothers about JS's true identity, how she could be disguised as anyone right now and how she was there at the hotel to wait for the sugar bowl to arrive and then finally carry out her plan on the same day that Dewey's own plan would also be put into action. "The only thing that could stop her from acting is if she realizes that her children are walking freely around the hotel," said Dewey to his brothers, "so I think I'm going to ask my dear Kit for a favor."
Beatrice only opened the sugar bowl out of curiosity at first, but upon discovering the black, shiny wooden object inside, she had no choice but to take it. Not because she was planning to tell Lemony, that would only complicate things, but because she was afraid of what Esmé, or rather Ellington, was planning to do with it.

The taxi driver, who had just put out his cigarette on the floor, said to the woman who had just come out of the trunk: "I don't understand why you wanted to get out of there, after so much work to retrieve the sugar bowl from that pond". "My kids were there, Gregor, and I didn't want them to see that whole violent scene, " replied the woman.

Sally, who had never really worked on a film before, other than as an extra when scenes needed a crowd, was completely unprepared for this. “I will not yell at the expensive star. I will not yell at the expensive star,” she said, looking her reflection squarely in the bloodshot eye.

Lemony was crying like a child as Beatrice swam further and further into the ocean right after she threw the sugar bowl at him and confessed to him: "Yes, Lemony, you're right: I may have helped the world to be quieter but I am no better than any of the criminals I killed and that's why I came so far I ask you to help me commit my last crime. " Lemony had already decided not to collaborate with this, but he opened the sugar bowl and got ready to use its contents as soon as she shouted from among the waves: "I know you've done something like this before so it won't be difficult to do when you know that I killed Jacques! "

Lemony had finally completed what he had decided to do over the past few months: he had found the missing items mentioned in those letters, he had found the poem My Silence Knot again, he had finished writing chapter 14 of the last book after meeting Beatrice that still remained, and he had made a list containing 12 (or maybe 13) shocking secrets about himself, and he had sent it all to his representative through a group of bats that had accompanied him to that island. Now, on the day of the decision, as Lemony opened the sugar bowl inside that little boat, he wondered if anyone would really understand some details he had added to all those documents: he wondered if anyone would understand the secret message left as the last secret shocking or whether anyone would understand why he chose "the end of Lemony Snicket" as the title of his book, or whether anyone would realize what sense Beatrice had sunk, or why he chose to quote a poem that called for death in the introduction to the last chapter of him life.
The only other pregnant woman on the island was in tears in front of the crowd: "She forced me to eat that apple, and now I don't feel the baby kicking inside me anymore." "Ishamael, she needs to pay for her crimes!" Shouted one of the castaways.
This reminds me of the unreleased Melanie Martinez song Rocking Horse.

The scariest thing about this fica is that the more you think about It, the more it seem to fit in with ASOUE's story.
Because, if you stop to think: How did Kit and Beatrice know that the apple was dangerous for the fetus? If Beatrice developed the apple on the island, and she did not eat it herself, then someone who was pregnant ate it. Someone who was on the island.

I read the lyrics to the song. Really, it looks like someone who has been doing wrong things little by little until she is completely disillusioned with herself and thinks she has no more salvation and has no way to be forgiven. He looks like someone who ended up disappointing another person he loved, to the point of thinking that he no longer deserves her love. Yes, this song seems to fit with my view of Beatrice in this Fanfic. (And yes ... Actually, all the excerpts are part of the same Fanfic that I never wrote but that I always imagined. It's like I said once: I have two Fanfic universes: one in which Beatrice dies and the other in which she survives ).
This game gave me the opportunity to put into words the things I had imagined. Thanks, / again roxy222. It was an interesting challenge to summarize everything in two sentences. But I think the effect matched perfectly with two sentences. Especially since I was able to write without thinking in chronological order. Furthermore, I think my main block in writing this Fanfic, was my obsession with using a narrator-character, which, however much I tried, did not match this dark story. Beatrice herself could not be a narrator. And the reaction of the other characters would be so shocking that thinking about it wouldn’t make them want to write about it, much less research about it. So, this game helped me put everything in the form of third-person narration.
The poem Lá Beatrice, in which I believe Daniel Handler was a strong inspiration to set the tone for ASOUE, ends with the revelation that the woman loved by the poet was united with his enemies. And the woman's name is Beatrice. And this poem is quoted in TBBRE. In the poem, this revelation is what prevents the poet from simply ignoring the mockery and difficulties imposed by the enemies. Finding that out was the end for him. If Lemony is like the poet, and Beatrice Baudelaire is like The Beatrice of the Poem, then I thought it would be interesting to let Lemony find out what Beatrice had done wrong in the worst possible way.
The lyrics of the song were undeniably dark, perhaps too dark for a girl as young as the one lying in the cradle of green wood, but it seemed to be having the desired effect: Violet’s lilac-blue eyes shut, and she never heard the meeting her parents were about to have downstairs. The last words she remembered hearing, so innocent at the time, so haunting once tragedy struck and turned her life upside down, could almost have been written about this fleeting calm before the storm: ‘The World Is Quiet Here’.
